Quebec, QC, Canada, August 24th , 2017 – Nutaq Innovation, a wholly owned subsidiary of NuRAN Wireless (CSE: NUR) (OTC: NRRWF) is pleased to announce that it will be hosting its first Symposium on 5G Massive MIMO Research in Quebec City on September 26–28, 2017.

Researchers representing universities from around the world and industrial partners such as Xilinx, Analog Devices, The Mathworks and Canadian operator Videotron who is also implicated in the Open Sky Laboratory for Smart Life with Ericsson, ETS and the Quartier de l’Innovation, will be in attendance to present and discuss a number of important topics in 5G development including;

  • the latest developments in 5G research,
  • present the outcome of their respective research projects,
  • create new international collaboration opportunities, learn about and discuss industry trends in radio access network development,
  • explore the different funding programs available for research,
  • participate in a workshop on the Nutaq 5G Massive MIMO testbed.


“This Symposium further confirms Nutaq’s leading position as a pioneer in software-defined radio and in 5G Massive MIMO research. With this first invitation only event, we can really focus on the quality of the discussions and the opportunities that will emerge. We are also very confident that it will lead to the Symposium being presented on an annual basis to a growing audience.” stated Tristan Martin, Director of Business Development at Nutaq.


The Nutaq 5G Massive MIMO Testbed, also called TitanMIMO, is a software-defined radio that can support up to 1000 transceivers (or antenna elements) and enables real-time, wideband, Massive MIMO implementation. The system also allows measurement in different channel conditions.


5th generation mobile networks or 5th generation wireless systems, abbreviated as 5G, are the proposed next telecommunications standards beyond the current 4G/IMT-Advanced standards. Rather than faster peak Internet connection speeds, 5G planning aims at higher capacity than current 4G, allowing higher number of mobile broadband users per area units, and allowing consumption of higher or unlimited data quantities in gigabyte per month and user. This would make it feasible for a large portion of the population to stream high-definition media many hours per day with their mobile devices when Wi-Fi hotspots are not available. 5G research and development also aims at improved support of Device-to-Device communication, aiming at lower cost, lower latency than 4G equipment and lower battery consumption, for better implementation of the Internet of things.
